THE VIBE:  Start spreading the news, we’ve got a place you can stay – the sophisticated Royalton Hotel in one and only New York City. In the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps – ironically- there are endless hotel options, but the Royalton is exclusive to only the people in the “know,” and we are handing you the golden key to this mysterious mid-town escape. Originally began as upscale residences, this boutique hotel is situated in the heart of Manhattan, but now is visited by NYC’s elite. Old-world charm tucked away in an endless modern city, it is a pure treasure.

THE SLEEP: Well-known interior designers from Roman & Williams created a space that plays with light and texture to create a crisp, urbane vibe with views overlooking the city.  With 168 sleek guestrooms and luxurious suites, exclusive apartment-style rooms, and penthouse accommodations there are plenty of options for anyone to live like a true New Yorker. The most prestigious of them all, the Penthouse South – the largest of the three penthouses and features a sophisticated living room, two large solariums and a separate bedroom with a king-sized bed, but the mid-town skyline views from the spacious terrace are the real WOW factor. Select rooms have working fireplaces and – amongst the all the sophistication there is a beam of neon light illuminating from the disco shower.


THE TASTE: The taste of NYC is far more than just pizza and street vendors, the lavish dining experience at Forty Four is a iconic setting where everyone is someone. The restaurant located in the Royalton has a changing seasonal menu with favorites like Steak Frites and new dishes like the North Atlantic Ora King salmon, which makes each dining experience unique. As the night progresses, the sounds of smooth jazz and cocktail shakers fill the room transporting you back to a time of Gatsby-like wonder. Grab a stool at the 44 Bar where the plethora of artfully crafted cocktails and reinvented classics is almost over shadowed the roaring 20 foot fireplace, but of course a proper martini reigns king.

THE LOCALE: Mid- town, home to the big city dreamer is the only place to stay if you want to truly understand this vast concrete jungle. There are endless possibilities in this city; people watch in electrifying lights of Times Square, catch the matinee of your favorite Broadway show, soak up the views at the top of the Empire State building or simply get lost in the crowd – whatever you choose DO as the New Yorkers do ; J walk, hail a yellow cab, keep the abnormal walking pace, indulge in a tasty treat and pair it with a strong cocktail for the charm of this city is deserving of celebration.
